Sun Setting on WNBC Daytime Show ‘New York Live’

WNBC daytime lifestyle show “New York Live,” which has undergone several format and talent changes since debuting in 2009, will sign off for good this fall.

The Daily News reports that the show, currently hosted by Sara Gore, Jane Hanson, and Jacque Reid, will be cancelled later this year and will likely be replaced by a new syndicated talk show.

“After a good run, New York Live will be going off the air in the fall,” a WNBC spokesperson told TVSpy today. “We have not yet made the decision as to what programming will take that time slot.”

Last year, “New York Live,” which is produced by LX.TV, was bumped to 3:00 p.m. to make way for a 5 o’clock newscast that it had effectively replaced.

WNBC Returning Newscast to 5 p.m.

Two years after scrapping its 5 p.m. newscast in favor of the local lifestyle show “LX New York,” WNBC has decided to return news to the timeslot. In September, the station will debut a new, one-hour newscast in the spot that previously held the station’s iconic “Live at Five” brand for nearly three decades.

“NBC 4 believes in local news, and we are making that investment with the addition of the 5 p.m. newscast,” general manager Michael Jack told the Daily News in announcing the programming shift. “Our station has an important responsibility to deliver critical local news and information to our viewers, and the 5 p.m. will help us do that.”

The introduction of “LX New York,” which has since been rebranded “New York Live,” was part of a larger rescaling effort that led to layoffs and tension in the newsroom. The return of a 5 p.m. newscast should give the WNBC news team a welcome jolt of confidence in the direction of the station.

WNBC plans to move “New York Live” to 3 p.m.
